Description

After a couple of pitches of ice climbing, about 800' of snow climbing, and a summit of Mount Lincoln earlier in the morning, John, Kevin, and I drove to Clear Creek Canyon for the second official leg of our self inflicted Colorado Triathlon.  With a relatively big morning, we each only climbed Shimbleshanks (5.8) once in the Catslab area before transitioning into the third official leg of the day, which was mountain biking.
